What To Expect At Your Visit
We implement evidence-based psychological treatment to improve self-understanding among patients and encourage them to develop new insights, attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the patient and psychologist alike. Making small consistent changes to self-defeating behavior and developing skills for resilience in managing feelings of sadness, anxiety, anger and pain can bring life-altering results.
